In a sneak peek (obtained by Page Six) of the August 8 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino sits down with his costar Ronnie Ortiz-Magro to talk about his (at the time) upcoming nuptials to now-wife Lauren Pesce.
However, the conversation takes a turn when the MTV star asks Ron about his rocky relationship with baby mama Jen Harley.
“Listen, I’ve been seeing some s–t lately, you know, on the ‘Gram and what not,” Mike questions. “Is everything cool?” When Ronnie starts to explain, the show cuts to Mike in the confessional talking to cameras about Ron's chipped teeth. “This mothaf--ka got no teeth?” he states. If you rewind the clip and look closely, we have to ask: What’s up with Ronnie’s teeth?
Wait, what happened to Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s teeth?
Speaking to his friend, Mike quickly notices that Ronnie’s teeth are seriously chipped in the front. He told cameras in his confessional interview, “Straight one, two to take out the bottom teeth.” Adding, “Ron, I love you, but take 20K back from Jen and get some new teeth.” Ouch!
Fans of the series have watched Ron’s tumultuous relationship play out on screen and in the news. In May, Jen was arrested for domestic battery following an altercation with the reality star stemming from earlier in the year. Ron filed a police report on January 3 against his girlfriend after she allegedly threw a glass ashtray at him. Pictures were obtained showing the reality star with a split lip and swollen nose.
“They have a very volatile relationship,” a source told Us Weekly at the time of the fight. “It’s either great or the total opposite.”
Are Ron and Jen still together?
The couple has been dating since 2017 and welcomed a baby girl, Ariana Sky, the following year. While the pair have had their ups and downs, they are currently back together. Ron and Jen celebrated Fourth of July at the lake with friends, commemorating the day with an Instagram picture.
In the upcoming episode, Ronnie tells Mike that “everything is good” between the pair. “We both feel embarrassed right now, you know? I mean it’s not a proud moment for either one of us,” he adds.
The “Situation,” who is currently serving an 8-month sentence for tax evasion, then asks if Ron wants his daughter and Jen at the wedding.
“I definitely think Jen and the baby being at the wedding is a good thing in my relationship just because I want both of my families to mesh together,” he says in his confessional interview. “But I just feel like every time I bring Jen around it just becomes a big joke of some sort. So it’s like, I don’t know what to do.”
Well, this season of the hit MTV show has certainly been filled with a ton of emotional moments.
